Holland works in mixed media; particularly film, photography and illustration.

He is interested in the paradox of how the act of creation causes the physical deterioration of the medium itself. Also, how a piece may evolve organically and chaotically through constant reworking, destruction and re-creation. He sees this as relative to the physical nature of the city and it’s processes of ruin, abandonment, and waste; as well as those of construction, re-birth and re-use.

He chooses to reflect this through his use of abandoned technology and media, and is interested in exploring these themes through documenting waterways and pathways through the city.

Holland is currently studying his MA in Graphic Design at Camberwell College Of Art.
